Training, Workshops, and Masterminds

TopSide groups are designed to challenge current thinking styles, educate on key topics, and empower individual participants. We provide a safe and supportive environment where personal and professional growth and awareness take place through both inner and outer work.

While groups can be held on site or via webinar/teleconference, they are highly interactive and  limited in size. Participants are given relevant weekly assignments based on group directed needs and they interact with their peers and coach between calls via TopSide’s unique private and secure online coaching journal.

This makes trainings, workshops, and mastermind groups easily achievable with members from different cities, states, and countries. Members log their progress in their journal which allows group interaction with the coach between weekly coaching sessions.

  • Sales teams
  • Management teams
  • Customer support staff
  • Marketing representatives
  • Team members with similar occupational roles
  • Executive teams

What is the benefit of group programs?

When we work in a group setting, although it’s not singular in nature, having the entire group’s input in thinking magnifies the richness of the discussions and results in developing solutions that are above and beyond what any individual can create.  The cohesive bond that is formed empowers each person to develop the leader within and shine in a safe environment that nurtures the group as a whole. It is an experience unlike any other and follows the same premise as an academic think tank.

TopSide frequently creates customized programs uniquely tailored to help organizations achieve their current goals.


Our team also has a number of programs prepared based on our years of collective experience providing corporate and organizational trainings.


As Certified Independent Coaches, Trainers, and Speakers with the John Maxwell Team, we offer teachings based on the works of author, teacher, and speaker, Dr. John C. Maxwell delivered in the form of workshops, tele-seminars, or Mastermind Groups both locally and via distance learning.




There is synergy of energy, commitment and excitement that participants bring to a mastermind group. Our facilitated groups offer a combination of masterminding, peer brainstorming, education, accountability and support in a group setting to sharpen your business and personal skills. By bringing fresh ideas and a different perspective, my masterminds can help you achieve success.

Key Benefits of a Mastermind Group:

As a part of all the teaching and coaching modalities, your TopSide Coach will provide effective team communication and structure that is important for forging relationships and equipping your team with the proper attitudes to develop leaders within.  We will work through goal setting and communication exercises that will bring cohesiveness to your group ultimately increasing productivity due to the positive influences each member will have on the group as a whole.

Can we incorporate our company mission into the trainings?

Naturally our goal is to create a stronger and more committed team that is passionate about the company mission and vision. At your request we will incorporate your organization’s meeting theme or mission/vision statement or build on your existing training schedule to best fit the needs of your group.

What makes TopSide different than other coaching and training companies?

TopSide Coaches incorporate the use of daily journaling into all our coaching programs. The secure, private, and customized TopSide online coaching journal allows for a deeper and more meaningful coaching experience whereby the coach and the group members are connecting, not only during regularly scheduled coaching calls, but also daily through the coaching journal.

What do group members write in their journals?

Weekly journal assignments are designed by your TopSide Coach based on mutually established goals, material in the group program, and/or specific areas of personal growth and development the coach believes will help group members move forward.

The TopSide coach will read and comment on journal entries between calls allowing for full attention on coaching calls to be focused on moving forward rather than catching up. Group members are also encouraged to comment on each other’s journal entries as a way to support, encourage, challenge, and learn from one another.

Why is journaling a key component in TopSide’s group programs?

Top performers in all professions write daily. They have a consistency and a commitment to daily writing that does not waiver no matter where they are. What we write about and think about and concentrate on is what transpires. What we focus on grows. As group members post journals of their own and read the journals of others, a bond forms and even participants from across the country feel as though they know each other at a more intimate level.

“Journaling has a transformational effect. It’s very subtle but very powerful, and works faster and more effectively at driving results than anything else I have ever seen in coaching.” says Kim Ades, MBA, Founder and President of Frame of Mind Coaching and Journal Engine.
